a christmas carol. i mean, someone. why? are they that bitter against religion? is that what it is? did they have a bad experience with organized religion? is it bitterness? >> well, i don't want to psycho analyze atheist activists who do prioritize that, but what i will say is that i think that the separation of church and state is in place to insure that the government does not privilege one religion over any other. it does not endorse any one religion over any other. so, my feeling on christmas displays in public spaces, in public schools is that if those are there, there should be displays for many different religions and many nonreligious -- >> i don't think many people have a beef with that. i don't think -- not in my crew. >> no -- >> nobody has a beef with that. >> i would hope not, yeah. yeah, exactly. >> i mean, we don't like, we don't like -- >> i mean, look -- >> i have to amend this. there are two things that have come up, one in the capital of washington state, in olympia. there were some atheist groups who said if you have a christmas tree, i'm going to put up an obnoxiou

it's a question of whether a personal interpretation of your religion would be the grounds for giving you asylum on the grounds of persecution. or whether it has to be a widespread one. for example, if germany had denied the family the ability to declare the godhood of christ, it would be no question that would be persecution of a christian on the grounds of his religion. the question of whether or not the belief that the family has, that to allow a child to go to public school is against the religion, because of the corrupt way or any religious way that that children are taught, is clearly a minority view, a personal view. and i'm extremely sympathetic with that family. and i wish it weren't being, you know, persecuted, having the threat of their children removed. but as a question of our principle of granting asylum, if the court takes it up, it's going to have to decide how widespread a belief has to be to actually be one that the united states would recognize persecution. otherwise there is a danger of a lot of personal interpretations, which it would have to defend and become a h

culprits seeking to diminish christmas, the american civil liberties union, the freedom from religion foundation, and the american humanist association. the most aggressive is the freedom from religion foundation, which routinely threatens to sue small towns and school districts if they dare utter the word christmas or allow choirs to sing carols in public schools. the irony is that nobody's bothering the atheists. they are free to celebrate whatever they want to celebrate. they're free not to believe, and they are free to snicker at anybody who does believe. that's not good enough for these people. they want to banish any mention of jesus in the public square. they are the oppressors. the christmas spirit people are just upholding a nice tradition. so why are we allowing anti-christmas madness? polls showed 47% of americans show there is a war on christmas. 40% do not. 13% are confused. so once again this year, i will keep an eye on the situation. helping me is the alliance defending freedom organization based in scottsdale, arizona. they have been very successful in defending tradit

by suppressing the freedom of religion. first of all, students theoretically have the same constitutional rights as the rest of us. that includes the freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion. this girl's not trying to have somebody celebrate mass in the hallway of the school. she's simply passing out literature saying if you'd like to talk about jesus or if you'd like to talk about the bible i'm happy to meet with you at another time and at another place. schools can restrain speech if the speech is disruptive. but when the speech is not disruptive and when it's especially protected in the constitution, like speech about religion or speech about nonreligion, they cannot interfere. >> here's the problem. the school has got a policy, and we got a statement from the school, quote, the distribution of any religious material is prohibited on school ground or in any attendance facility before, during or after the school day or school activity. so you say they've got that rule but that doesn't fly? >> that rule is unconstitutional unless they can show that the mere distribution of this lit l
